CCC 30 - painty altered metal

We only have a few more techniques to go in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenges, hosted by the lovely Linda but she's promised us something to take it's place - but it's a secret still!

So for this week, we are on page 48, altered metal with paint.  I loved this one - though my paint dabbers are so gungey they all need copious amounts of water adding and much digging around in the caps to get the paint flowing again - that's a job for another day.

Anyhow, enough waffling.  I went back to tags for today, and "did" the technique on an ornate plate and some idea-ology foliage (with a maya road blossom thrown in too) 

The tag is coloured with pine needles DI, & spritzed with a home-made reinker/perfect pearl spray; the stylised label (grungepaper) is painted with silver paint dabber and stamped with a Wendy Vecchi script stamp.

Stamped the "dance" part of the Tim stamp on a scrap of a tag to fit the ornate plate, and the whole thing on the tag.

Colours on the foliage pieces are copper, lemonade and clover, and juniper on the ornate plate.

Gloria from the yahoo group All Things Tim is sponsoring this week, so I am linking this there too.

Love your SDC card - I missed out this fortnight cause I just had too much one. Happy I got to see it here. Also, loving the cardboard drawers - I think they used to sell those at Muji but not sure if they do still. Man I love that place :)
